The Deal of the Summer?

You took advantage of a valuable promotion being offered by a popular vacation rental company. Your family is going to save over 50% on a vacation rental property during the summer! Great find on your part, but what is happening behind the scenes? Protect yourself and understand what the business is cutting back on in order to offer you that steep deal. Sometimes that deal is not as good as it seems.

Getting a great rate on a vacation rental property is important, but you have to want the excellent services and support that goes along with a memorable, hassle-free vacation. A heavily discounted rental doesn’t necessarily mean you’re getting the best deal. Guests should read between the lines and always ask about the disclaimer if the deal is too good to be true. Properly cleaned vacation properties, a prompt maintenance staff, and great customer service are all very important factors in your family’s vacation. Be leery of companies that skimp on their support services to offer you the best rate – it does happen.

Ocean Drive Beach Rentals takes time to research vacation rental prices throughout the industry, and to get our guests the right price. Our prices are competitive with other companies along the Grand Strand. We won’t slump on our great customer service, superior housekeeping, and maintenance support. Specialty programs, such as our Endless Fun Club, are designed to SAVE you valuable vacation dollars to give your family that added value while visiting North Myrtle Beach. You won’t be going home broke at the end of your week of rest and relaxation.

I hope we offered some good advice for you to plan your next family vacation. Don’t rent a vacation property because of the big discount, but research as to what value the company offers your family when at the beach. Make sure they aren’t cutting back on their services.
